Gas Leaks

Gas Leaks Plumbing Emergencies

Having a gas leak is dangerous. This means it needs to be fixed immediately. So even if it is only a faint smell of gas you need to take action. That means the first thing you need to do is to isolate the source of the gas leak. You do this by isolating the source of the gas supply. This is done by turning the isolating valve to the off position on your gas meter. You should also open your windows for ventilation.

As soon as you have done this give us a call 24/7 for further assistance. We understand that it can be difficult to find a reliable plumber when you have a gas leak and need it fixed fast. That’s why we pride ourselves on guaranteeing to turn up on time.

What are the causes of gas leaks?

Faulty appliances

This includes gas ducted heating, gas log fires, gas hot water systems, and gas cookers.

Faulty or even corroded gas piping

You may not even be aware that your gas pipes are not in good working order as they are often hidden in walls, ceilings or under floors. In addition, although gas appliances are regularly updated gas pipes usually aren't until there is a problem. This means your gas pipes are likely to be older than you think.

How we fix gas leaks

We first test all your gas appliances and gas pipes above ground. If this is the cause of the gas leak we will fix the faulty appliance. However, if the connection to the gas appliance is found to be either loose or faulty we will fix that.

If there are no problems with either your gas appliances or gas pipes above ground, we then check the gas piping system for corrosion or wear out of joints. These effected parts are then replaced with a new a new pipe section or fitting. If the faulty gas pipe proves to inaccessible it may require your entire gas piping system to be replaced.
